I'm not sure why the picture of the 1-prim sculpted head I posted is considered self promoting, but I do admit that it was a very rough UV-ing and rather ugly. So, I would like to know whether it was removed for just being an ugly pic or if it's really self-promoting, and if so... why?

Latest revision as of 16:51, 8 August 2008

Hey Qarl, can you walk through your Maya script and detail what it's doing. A more detailed technical description will facilitate writing exporters for other products.

Thx Qarl,

Iron.

Self promoting or just ugly?

Current revision (06:15, 10 June 2007) (edit) (undo) Qarl Linden (Talk | contribs) (removing self promoting artwork) for Sculpted_Prims entry

I'm not sure why the picture of the 1-prim sculpted head I posted is considered self promoting, but I do admit that it was a very rough UV-ing and rather ugly. So, I would like to know whether it was removed for just being an ugly pic or if it's really self-promoting, and if so... why? (Ina Centaur 19:23, 10 June 2007 (PDT))

the "self promotion" business was more a reference to the other guy who added his picture. so far, i've been keeping the images on the front page to myself (i know, i know, wiki pages aren't a dictatorship, perhaps i shouldn't try) they've been images i particularly like. the head (was it your head?) was technically interesting, i ALMOST posted it - but we already had a head... :) --Qarl Linden 13:54, 12 June 2007 (PDT)

Sculptie Vertice 33 :)

If you've already written something about this, I haven't seen it, but if you haven't, don't worry; I think it makes perfect sense to me, and I could very well write&illustrate an explanation if there's any demand for it. (Is there?)

Just to check that I got this right: A sphere- or cylinder-mapped sculpted prim would only need to make use of 32 vertices around, but 33 from end to end (pole to pole). A planar-mapped sculpted prim would need a full 33×33 mesh. A torus-mapped sculpted prim wouldn't need any 33rd row of vertices at all.

(Somehow I'm left wondering if I've already said this before. But I get that feeling too often.)

just out of curiosity....

Are you the same Qarl who made this ?

sadly, no. and it sucks, because we go back and forth over the highest google hit for "qarl".
